The digital identity space has evolved and there is now growing importance of identity and user authentication. Mobile Connect is a portfolio of mobile-based secure identity services driven by mobile operators around the globe. It offers a wide range of digital identity possibilities and allows the industry to explore and expand the opportunities of the digital market. It enables consumers to register and log in to websites and apps. In addition, it also allows the user to authorise transactions whilst sharing only the data needed to verify those attributes required completing the transaction.
By leveraging a global API, Mobile Connect will allow operators to tap onto other operators’ users base and sell their own data equity to other operators and service providers internationally. It unlocks a large variety of revenue streams.

With the launch of GANMI (Global Alliance for National Mobile Identities) a strong co-operation is in motion. Working in Austria, Azerbaijan, Belgium, Estonia, Iceland, Israel, Moldova, Norway, Oman, Switzerland and Turkey, GANMI aims to converge applicable standards in order to promote global interoperability of public and private digital services, extend supplier choice and reduce risk.
Mobile ID allows people to prove their identity and give e-signatures that are legally equivalent to face-to-face identification and handwritten signatures when using e-services such as online banking, exactly the same way as a regular passport at a branch office of a bank. It is the backbone of any modern e-society.
The ability to adopt e-services through electronic ID leads to incredible increases in efficiency in both the private and public sectors. Countries can save the equivalent of up to 2% of their GDPs and hundreds of millions of working hours per year, creating new jobs and reducing the impact on the environment. Broader benefits of creating an e-society are increasing international trade, growing the economy and most importantly giving people more free time to enjoy the things they love.
Examples of what can be done in a matter of minutes with electronic ID: digital medical prescriptions, opening a company in another country, bank transfers, applying for/renewing a driver's license, declaring taxes, signing a contract to buy a new house, hiring an employee.
Where is the identity saved? What security and technology is used? Identities are embedded on SIM cards with the highest level of security achieved using PKI (public key infrastructure) – a high-grade set of hardware, software and standards used to issue, store and revoke credentials. Just as with a passport, every government will be the sole issuer for its citizens, providing the best care and reliability. Usernames and passwords are not stored in remote databases nor do they ever go through internet channels, therefore they can not be compromised in any way.
Identity assurance is a critical component for the digital era. In this session we will go over the most common challenges and proven winning strategies and tactics to ensure that the right user is accessing the right data thru mobile and hybrid digital environments.
